Spring

Cool, clear waters cas­cade at East Gill Force, Swaledale, York­shire.

Evergreen - - Con­tents - Ken­neth Adam

Are those rain­drops on my win­dow pane? Are those snowfl akes in the air? Are those petals fall­ing all about? Wait, shall we stand and stare?

Shall we stand and marvel, Wait for heaven to smile, To pon­der how it came about? Yes, we should wait awhile.

Deep be­neath this fer­tile cloth, Fulfi lling ev­ery need, There lay a sus­te­nance divine, Of water, soil and seed.

A prom­ise draped in beauty. A prom­ise clothed with joy. A prom­ise from the hand of God, The earth His great em­ploy,

Soon may wake the sea­son’s dawn, An­nounc­ing “time to rise”. When seed and mois­ture beauty make, Pure joy for tired eyes.
